Generation Da Hong Pao

The most famous of all cliff oolongs, also known as Great Red Robe, this Wuyi oolong is deeply textured and rich, with a lovely roast that feels ancient. From 20 year old bush.

Notes of chocolate, roasted barley, and old tobacco barn.

The most famous of all cliff oolongs, also known as Great Red Robe, this Wuyi oolong is deeply textured and rich, with a lovely roast that feels ancient.  The cutting for this Da Hong Pao has been in the farmer's family for 3 generations, and the mineral qualities of the tea are quite deep.

The medium oxidizing of these large leaves imparts a red fruitiness while the medium charcoal roast imparts a warmth and caramelization.  The profile is rustic and abundant, like a vast ancient city of wooden buildings, tobacco barns.

Cliff oolongs should be brewed carefully, but because this Da Hong Pao is very sturdy you can extend the brewing times.  I recommend 195 degree water with a 2 minute infusions.
